Native of Chechnya detained for attacking MIA employee in Saint Petersburg
A native of Chechnya, known for his public apologies for shooting near the police building in Saint Petersburg, was detained after using force against a female employee of the migration service. The incident occurred amid the demonstrative return by law enforcers of hundreds of young people convicted of offenses to Chechnya.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that in November 2019, a video appeared in social networks, in which the driver of a car with the inscription "#nokhchiborz" (Chechen wolf) on the windshield is shooting from a Kalashnikov assault rifle while driving in the area of the Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) in Saint Petersburg. Law enforcers detained the shooter and opened a criminal case on hooliganism against him. On November 24, the "Fontanka" posted, in its YouTube page, a video with the detainee's apologies.
Now, an unemployed 21-year-old native of Chechnya has been detained in Saint Petersburg, who last night, in response to the demand of a female employee of the migration service to present his documents, twisted her arm. An administrative protocol was drawn up against him for disobedience to a police servant.
The detainee is the same person who fired a submachine gun at the police building in 2019.
Let us note here that Chechen authorities are trying to control the behaviour of the natives of the republic outside Chechnya. Thus, on August 3, the "Grozny" ChGTRK (Chechen State TV and Radio Company) reported that Chechen authorities had forced about 100 native of the republic, alleged drug addicts and offenders, to return from Moscow to Chechnya. Young people then publicly repented.
